Marie Mendy, LRC
Marie Mendy is a Licensed Resident Counselor in Virginia who has been practicing since 2021. She has an MA from NYU- Steinhardt (Counseling For Mental Health & Wellness).
As a therapist (Resident Counselor), Marie believes in creating a supportive and empathetic environment that helps her clients feel comfortable as they engage in a trusting therapeutic process. Marie’s treatment philosophy is mainly influenced by Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy REBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, and Existential Therapy. She believes in tailoring treatment to the individual to encourage, empower, and equip clients to find meaning and purpose in life. Core beliefs are the center of how individuals see their world, others, and themselves. Finding the root cause for uncomfortable symptoms is essential for lasting relief, behavioral change, and healthy, functional thought. For effective therapy, collaboration is a must, and working with clients to strive for the outcome they seek is more effective than working alone. Marie’s style can be a bit more active, educational, and goal-oriented in addressing clients’ current problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may interfere with their daily lives and relationships. Clients should understand their difficulties and possess strategies and tools that enable them to function more effectively at school, at work, and in interpersonal relationships. Establishing well-defined goals and making progress on them leads to greater motivation and effective outcomes. Change is difficult but not impossible. Anything learned can be unlearned with the right help from a loving and compassionate therapist with the willingness and determination of the clients.
In her spare time, Marie enjoys playing board games, running, long-distance walking, hiking, cooking, reading, writing, and volunteering.
